Have been sick since Thursday. Spent almost two days in bed with the heater on full blast beside me. Can’t shake this nagging headache or the niggling itch that prompts me to go into huge bursts of violent coughing. And i know this case of cold is bad when i started getting muscular aches. I never get those no matter how sick.
Canceled all my activities to stay home. Tried to do some reading since my exams are coming; my headache got worse. In fact, the pain got precise – centred in my right occipital lobe. Wtf?
I thought four days of rest would suffice. I thought wrong. I woke at 6am to attempt to do a shift in the emergency department. 15 minutes in the department, i was trying to stop myself from coughing madly. I excused myself. I don’t want anyone else falling sick. Plus i was dealing with pregnant patients.
I am weary.
